Do you own a tablet device? If you haven’t already, be sure to download Evernote to it and check out our tips for getting more out of Evernote on your tablet.

  1. For meetings. Sometimes, you don’t want to drag your laptop to a meeting. Use Evernote on your tablet to take quick notes, as well as to record audio. Everything you capture will automatically sync to all the other devices where you have Evernote installed (including your desktop computer!).
  2. For cooking. We all know that things can get messy in the kitchen, and you need more room for bowls and ingredients than for your laptop. Use Evernote or Evernote Food to access your favorite recipes (web clips, handwritten notes, and magazine scans) while you’re cooking.
  3. For business travel. Traveling for business means packing light and ensuring that you — and your work — are mobile. Be sure to forward important email correspondences, save meeting agendas and documents you might want to edit to your Evernote account so you can access them from your tablet. If you’re a Premium user, take notebooks offline so you can get work done, even when you’re not connected to the Internet.
  4. For leisurely reading. Clip articles you want to read later to your Evernote account and do your nightly reading in bed, using Evernote on your tablet.
  5. For multi-tasking. Whether you’ve got kids, pets, hobbies, or work that tends to spill over into the nighttime hours, being able to tackle your to-do’s — whether personal or professional — is much easier when you can do them while you’re doing something else. Evernote on your tablet lets you get a jump on writing a meeting agenda, shoot off a trip itinerary, or read up on your best man speech from your couch, in a park or at the coffee shop.

    I use Evernote most effectively on my tablet. I only wish penultimate worked for Android. ;)

    Strange question. Obviously you still don’t take your iPad users seriously. Of course I use Evernote on my iPad. It is the main use of Evernote for me. Please further develop Evernote for iOS in a way to include all functionalities of the versions for “traditional” computers. The iPad is my notebook! There is no need for special use cases for Evernote on tablets. These are same as for any other Evernote versions.

      Obviously you haven’t used Evernote to the capacity that some of us early users have. There are no tablets available that have enough storage space to sync all of my notes, and the cloud is not always available. I use Evernote on my tablet and phone also, but I realize the limitations.

        This seems to be a very special case. I will need many years to fill up the 128 GB storage of my iPad Air just with Evernote offline data. But I doubt anyway that every Evernote premium user has every notebook stored for offline usage.

    Love love love evernote, but have to say that clipping on iOS Safari is still unacceptably painful.

    You have poured resources into improving the Evernote experience everywhere else, can I please ask you to fix the bookmarklet so it works on iOS?

    Especially on an iPhone, the popup clipping window is defaulted to be so big as to be unusable – the “Save to Evernote” button is off-screen.

    Maybe there’s a newer bookmarklet that works better already? If so, please correct me. Thanks!

      As much as I would also like this improved, there is an app called Clever Clip (and Clever Clip HD for iPad) that does a rather good job at providing a working bookmarklet as well as some of the evernote web clipper style options for selecting what to clip. I would recommend this until Evernote gets it right for iOS.

    We use iPad for blogging with Postach.io. Business doesn’t have to mean a desk and a chair anymore, it can also mean rush-hour blogging. It’s useful for cooking as well, after all, you can’t take a desktop PC into the kitchen!

    Can Evernote work on the new ASUS Tablet running Windows 8.1 64 bit?

    • David M

      It runs on mine. Search the store for Evernote Touch (and Skitch). It’s not on the cutting edge of Evernote clients, but works well enough.

  • Rian

    Why is it not possible to delete a notebook on the Android app? It’s silly, isn’t it?

    Evernote / Penultimate duo are irreplaceable. Love the magnify / scroll feature as you write in Penultimate. Makes writing notes fun (and infinitely more legible). I have a Penultimate notebook for every account I work on at the ad agency I work at. Also, LOVE the aesthetic consideration you’ve given to the Evernote iOS apps (iPad, iPhone). Color pallet, typography, the whole architecture. Spot on. Also love the new Safari bookmarklet, took a bit to get used to, but it’s much more evolved.

    Evernote on my Android would work so much better in concert with Penultimate! Oh well, I’m getting used to Evernote treating Android users as second-class citizens.

    Evernote ‘s productivity on tablets is crock with one big item missing: batch processing. Using it on my phone or tablet is a ridiculous headache when trying to handle more than one note, which I do on a regular basis. Stop giving us “ideas” without giving us the tools we need.

    I love my galaxy note and like to take hand written notes without converting to text. Is there a way to shut off the handwriting to text feature (which doesn’t really work that well anyway) when using evernote on the galaxy note? I just want to keep the image of my hand written note. TIA

    Evernote doesn’t work on my dell with windows 8RT at all. Loved using it on my android tablet.

    I am running Evernote on my IPad Mini with IOS7. My question is, can I open my note in fullscreen so it is stable and doesn’t float around? Also, if i paste something that is in a small font, can i force my next entry to the regular font? Thx

  • Marilyn1998

    I run evernote on my ipad with IOS 7. When i open my note it is in a partial that is not stable and floats all over making it difficult to use. How can I open in full screen? Thx
